Before implementing any tool, you’ll need to identify and understand the needs of the people who will use it, such as your organization’s volunteers or partners. Consider whether consultants, clients, or even your board of directors will be impacted by your decision to use an online tool for recruiting.
Additionally, consider the amount of time it may take to set up and administer a Facebook page or Meetup group. You’ll need to invest some staff time for training and ongoing maintenance. Review the comparison tables that provide guidance on the time required for each tool.
